I agree, I am similarly perplexed..........! I adored Caligula, and am devouring Claudius, but what is the 3rd part of the Trilogy?

I also agree. Surely a "trilogy" should have three books written before starting another series, so where is the finishing follow-on to Caligula and Claudius?!

I am completer agreement. Real;y enjoyed Cligula and Claudius, so, whilst avidly following the Defender of Rome Series, have been waitng for the 3rd part of the Emperors "trilogy" (my original thought why stop there, little thinking it would stop even earlier). Having also embarked on the Robert Fabbri "Vespasian" series, I had imagined a crosssover in about 3 books time

Apologies to all the above for my tardiness in getting in touch as I've just stumbled on this thread. I'd always intended that the Rufus books should be a trilogy, but my original deal was only for two books and my publishers in their wisdom decided that it was time to move on to a new character (enter Gaius Valerius Verrens). The reasoning was fairly simple and difficult to argue against. Rufus is a slave and quite a passive hero, they wanted someone more at the centre of events. The success of the Hero of Rome series goes some way to vindicating the decision. That said, I do actually have the finale of the Rufus story (which evolved from a single book called The Emperor's Elephant) and if there's enough interest in it I'll publish at the very least as a low cost e-book. The one caveat is that some of the events of The Emperor's Elephant run parallel with Hero of Rome, and anyone who has read the Valerius book will notice that. It might put some people off, then again others might find it interesting to see the genesis of the ideas from a different point of view.

I'm not sure about the timescale, but I'm sure it will be possible and I'll keep you in touch, Doug Jackson

Just to say that sounds like a plan, but please, a normal book, speaking as one resistant to reading e versions. Keep up the great work with the Hero of Rome Series
best regards
